Basket UdeC said goodbye to the Liga de las Américas tonight, in the quarterfinals, after losing a dramatic 88-86 in the second duel of the key with the powerful Flamengo.

In the series to the best of three duels, the Brazilian team was left with an irretrievable 2-0 by also winning the first confrontation, by a resounding 94-62, at the Casa del Deporte penquista.

Now, at the Maracanázinho, the Chilean team came out with a totally different disposition from the first match. He squeezed each exit of the red and black and with a solid offensive game he had long passages of the duel between the ropes at the local.

Basket UdeC even won after the first two quarters by 44-32. However, the national debacle would come in the fourth and last half.

Flamengo reached the final quarter down 58-68 and ended up coming back in agony. With just one second left for the buzzer to sound, those from Rio de Janeiro made a key basket that allowed them to win and close the series.

Despite the goodbye to Universidad de Concepción, the Chileans achieved a historic advance to the round of the best eight on the continent.

The best of the visitor was Jerry Evans Jr. with 23 points, 6 rebounds and an assist.

For ‘Fla’, meanwhile, the best player was the Argentine Martín Cuello with 15 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists.
